A least President Clinton let American troops in Mogadishu rescue their own after they were attacked due to his earlier failure to provide them with adequate equipment and personnel to perform the meals-0n-wheels-like mission in the middle of Somalia’s civil war.
His wife and next Democratic Party successor in the Oval Office didn’t learn the Black Hawk Down lesson when they led from behind to oust a Libyan leader President George W. Bush has put in a WMD-surrendering box and then failed to heed repeated warnings that al Qaeda-and-other-terrorist-group-infested Benghazi was unsafe for months and refused Ambassador Chris Stevens the aid and additional security he repeatedly requested.
So by the time of the attacks on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, as ex-Secret Service agent and candidate for congress Dan Bongino (announcement video further below) suggests, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton went into default liar-mode:
It was an insider attack, planned for months. The administration didn’t want to admit that Libya was a failed mess. It had to be a foreign policy success right before the election, they knew there was a foreign policy debate coming up.
He [Obama] had just gotten destroyed during the first debate with Romney because he had nothing to stand on. So they had to find a scapegoat when this happened. They tried this ridiculous meme about the video, which is basically laughed at now, but back then was accepted by a collaborative media that just wanted to propagate this Aesop’s fable.
But I really believe that they just had them stand down because they had memories of “Blackhawk Down.” And if we got stuck over there, we’re going to have to tell a story about how Libya is a failure. But they never — can you imagine listening to the cries for help?
What difference, at this point, does it make, Hillary? A hell of a lot!
